    Default Tooltip & Ability Bugs in April 12th Hotfix

    Morning Everyone,

    So we've seen a number of threads pop up this morning about "Stealth Nerfs" to abilities made in last night's hot fix. We believe the issue has to do with some tooltip messaging optimizations that were made in order to improve overall server performance, especially duing high load world events.

    We are currently looking into the problem, to find out exactly where things went sideways and to confirm that it is a tooltip ONLY issue and not actual changes to the effects of abilities.

    There were no major balance changes intended to go out with last night's hotfix, nor are these changes "Accidently" leaked to live servers. Sweeping nerfs to many classes (Especially Rogues) is pretty much the opposite of our plans for our next balance patch.

    Thanks
    -Gersh

    So to make up for the confusion what ARE your plans for the next balance patch?

    Didn't you listen to the podcast? Everything is fine. Perhaps a "tweek" to GoS, maybe?

    is it just me, or did the rogue AP ratio's get switched to

    1 dex = .5 ap
    1 str = .5 ap

    when they were

    1 dex = .75 ap
    1 str = .25 ap.

    With their items being mostly Dex itemized this would produce a big drop in AP for them..
    All comments in the above post most likely should be read from a pure PvE perspective.

    Main Melee: BM/Champ/Para
    Raid Melee: Champ/BM/Para
    Ranged: Rift/Para/Pally
    Tank: Void/Reaver/Pally

    Hi all,

    This bug is purely COSMETIC and only affects the tool-tips for abilities. The abilities themselves are unaffected, wanted to let you know as soon as we did and appreciate all of your feedback regarding this issue.

    We have now sent out broadcasts and updated the MOTD to inform players of this un-intended display error.

    Thanks,

    I am noticing a 100 point drop in my final blow overall damge and crit. this is not purely cosmetic someone mentioned IMP. Final blow and Coupe de grace are not buffing our skills as they should be

    I love you for saying that! Bud you still cant have my last Bud Light.
    Dream for 1.3:
    *Crafters Rejoice - We've reduced all deposits when listing your wares on the Auctioneer by 75%. This only applies to player made items.
    *Quest Journal: Increased in size from 25 to 50. Also, guild quests, world event quests and crafting quests no longer contribute to your quest count. No more pesky messages!
    *New Portal System: All death platforms can now be used as portals. Each platform has a short quest that must be completed to unlock it's potential. Travel expenses have been reduced and now cost by the distance traveled and not the distance from your home city.

    It's always been an even split for Rogues. You must be thinking Warriors...

    Correct, beat me to it! Sheesh, something unintentionally changes and everyone goes berzerk looking for conspiracies.

    ah my bad, i thought warriors were 75% Str/ 25% dex (which warriors are) and Rogues were 75% dex / 25% str.

    my rogue is only 31, and i havn't really looked too much into his stats.
